A World Without Gas

Well, apparently Atlanta's gas shortage is still in full swing. Getting messages and seeing posts on atlanta about still no gas, people calling dozens of stations and hearing no, no gas. Some of the stations that do have gave are imposing limits, like $20/person, and all of them have long lines. Today Caleb and Daniel rode a bus on Peachtree St. in Buckhead and they said it was really eerie: no traffic. Meanwhile there were Buckhead ladies with their kids riding the bus, which trust me is unheard of but happens when there's no alternative. I had thought this distro problem would be over by now but indeed not. (For more info, see our local paper's coverage, http://www.ajc.com.)
